Zhongli Talesun is one of the first Chinese PV manufacturers to choose to build production site in Thailand. The manufacturing site would produce passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) technology for its new ‘Hipro’ 285W+ modules that were launched at SNEC in May. Meanwhile, the new PV modules would deploy solar cells with 20.3% conversion efficiencies, providing module conversion efficiencies of 17.55%.
Zhongli Talesun said this week that it had begun the first stage of production at its new 500MW integrated solar cell and module assembly plant in the Thai-China Industrial Park in Rayong, Thailand, announced in February.
The company noted in a financial filing in China that the start of production in Thailand would help the company further develop its PV business in Southeast Asia as well as across the world due to "effectively avoiding the impact of anti-dumping and anti-subsidies", which included the US and EU.
